Hiya, bees. How are ya? Long time, no blog!
I’m back today because I wanted to share my wedding experiences from the other side. Not the married side, but the bridesmaid side! I’m a bridesmaid in my future sister in law (FSIL Eggplant) and brother’s wedding next year. They recently got engaged and set their wedding date for October 2009 and I couldn’t be happier for them! I couldn’t have picked a better match for little Brother Eggplant if I had chosen her myself.
Last week, I got my very first bridesmaid newsletter from FSIL Eggplant. It was so stinkin’ adorable, I just had to share it with the hive.
The newsletter was called Bridesmaid Aisle Style. FSIL Eggplant and Brother Eggplant picked pink and brown as their wedding colors and each page was coordinated in shades of pink and brown. FSIL Eggplant wrote a sweet welcome message on the first page.
On the second page, she wrote introductions for the bridal party members. We don’t all know each other, so the blurbs were a great touch.
The third page showcased photos of our BM dresses. FSIL Eggplant already purchased our gowns for us! Now that’s stress-free wedding planning at its best.
On the fourth page, FSIL Eggplant included some suggestions for affordable, cute footwear.
Next, FSIL’s showed us the results of her makeup trial with Wow Pretty. Wow, she definitely looks purdy!
FSIL also introduced the designer who will be doing the reception florals. FSIL suggested making our own bouquets the night before the wedding to save a bit of money and spend some quality time together.
On the last page was everyone’s contact info, useful for bridal shower planning.
As a former bride myself, I loved receiving this newsletter in the mail and I appreciated the organized presentation of information. With busy schedules and limited time, it’s hard to stay current with everyone’s happenings. Newsletters are a wonderful and impressive method to keep in touch. They can be sent via snail mail or email in PDF format, although I personally prefer getting something in the mailbox myself.
Thanks for letting me post this, FSIL Eggplant! I’m looking forward to your wedding day!
